A great studio visit with our Prak-sis artist, Lynn Neuman! @neuman.lynn
_
Neuman's recent work reflects the stories of intersecting lives in urban environments. It's about the space between being together and being alone, connection and disconnection, individuality and societal expectations, interior and exterior, and movement and stillness. Lynn Neuman’s paintings have been included in private collections in Chicago, Cincinnati, Albuquerque and Atlanta.

Introducing our newly aquired Prak-sis artist, Jack Flynn! @jack.flynn.art
_
Jack Flynn conjures weightless scenes in oil with a deep attention paid to both the mute stillness of his chosen settings and the bold positioning of elements within.
_
Flynn's background in graphic design is clearly evident within several characteristics of his work. The tranquil backgrounds are chosen as flat color fields, achieving a subtle conversation between complementary tones. The iron, stone, or ice elements are employed fundamentally as lines and shape, providing compositional narrative as characters within the scene. The absence of life within the work heightens both the spare nature of the design and the sensation that one is viewing a threshold between worlds.
_
Although Flynn's paintings are firmly seated within a contemporary ideology, he has chosen to render the work with a high degree of realism. By doing so, he has brought the surreal calm of the composition into the rational world of the viewer.
_
A sophisticated presentation of form, tone, and space.

Happy Monday and meet our amazing new Prak-sis artist, Saehyun Paik! @paiksaehyun
_
Saehyun Paik is a New York-based abstract artist exploring minimalism through pattern, line, and close tolerance tonal relationships. Her work subtly but profoundly illustrates transformation and communication through repetitive, almost inappreciable course corrections resulting in unexpected outcomes.

Studio visit with incredibly talented Prak-sis artist Lynn Basa! @lynn.basa
_
Lynn Basa’s work zigzags across the boundaries of painting and object, accessibility and secrecy, doubt and self-assurance. Her many years toiling in the hinterlands of clay and fiber instilled in her a reflexive degree of sophisticated craftsmanship that shows up in her paintings - a trait that she is constantly trying to escape by techniques that rely more on happenstance and happy accidents than conscious mark-making. Still, there’s no place to hide. No matter how beautiful or awkward, each piece is psychologically revealing of her attitude towards herself and others.
_
Lynn has taught in the Sculpture Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, is the author of The Artist’s Guide to Public Art: How to Find and Win Commissions, and has completed numerous Chicago public art commissions.

Meet our newly represented artist Jane Barthès @janebarthes
_
Grounded in an intuitive, meditative process, Barthès' works are an exploration of the matter and energy that create form - an honest experiment at visually presenting the unseen mechanics of nature. Her flat, bold, primary color palette, architectural patterns, and suggestive hieroglyphics meet at a junction of art and science, freedom and restraint.
_
Born in Nigeria in 1959, Barthès has lived and traveled around the globe. After graduating in 1994 from Wimbledon School of Art at the University of London, she spent a decade living and working in the South of France where she established herself as an abstract artist, teacher, and theater set designer. Barthès moved to Chicago in 2009 and has been consumed by her exploration of “energy molecules”, now deeply inspired by the urban origami and Bauhaus lineage of the city she calls home.

What a wonderful studio visit with our newly represented artist Brian Sindler! @brian_sindler
_
“In these paintings, formal considerations take a back seat to contrasting tonalities and color harmonies. The effect is both poetic and sublime.”
- Michael Greany
_
Brian Sindler was born in Chicago in 1957. He received a bachelor of arts from Columbia College in Columbia, Missouri, and has studied at The American Academy of Art and The School of Representational Art in Chicago.
_
Much of his earlier work was impressionistic in style and clearly influenced by Monet and other French impressionistic masters with a focus on light and color. While pursuing new opportunities for artistic experimentation and growth, Brian entered into what would be considered a more tonalistic phase of his career. Whether in the studio or plein air, his work became characterized by the use of a subdued palette, the flattening of the pictorial space, and broad swaths of color with attributes reminiscent of Japanese prints. Brian’s urban nocturne paintings embody a softness of aesthetic with their milky green and blue hues evoking a dream-like atmosphere of industrial scenes, city lights, and chemical haze.

07/09/2019

Our newly representing artist, Thomas Masters explores sensations of depth, perceptions of time, perpetual movement and crackling energy through gestural action artworks. Though the compositions appear to be less of a formulated treatise than a release of instinctual compulsions, the balanced frameworks, elaborate layering and expert application of pigment stand as a testament to an artist with a lifetime of stored experience.
